The Aussie mum who was seen being carried out of Kylie Jenner’s 21st birthday party on a stretcher may have scored a surprising win from the unfortunate situation.

Model and Instagram star Tammy Hembrow boasted a following of 8.5 million followers before the debacle, according to E! Online. 

But after the 23-year-old influencer – who is a model for Khloe Kardashian’s clothing line – made headlines last week, she saw a spike in followers.

The mum of two’s fans have gone up over 100,000 in less than a week, taking her currently to 8.6 million.

While the rising star already had a following to brag about, they more eyeballs you have on your account, the more money you’re able to make.

After the stretcher photo went viral, Tammy recorded a YouTube video out about the incident, explaining what happened and calling it “super embarrassing”.

“I probably, definitely, shouldn’t have been drinking because of how jetlagged I was,” she said, explaining that she was extremely tired after “running on 30 hours of no sleep”.

She went on to say that she was at the party, catching up with friends and chatting with people when she “pretty much just collapsed”.

“I’m already like super, super embarrassed about it,” she said.

Tammy, who has two adorable children, three-year-old Wolf and two-year-old Saskia, also said she’s been “trying to keep busy” following her recent break-up with her fiancé and the father of her kids, Reece Hawkins.

“I’ve been throwing myself into work way more than ever and I have my kids the majority of the time,” she said.

“I think because of the break-up I’ve been trying to keep myself busy and not really taking time to think about how I’m actually feeling or focusing on myself.”

Meanwhile none of the Kardashian family have commented on what happened, with Kylie continuing her celebrations over the weekend.

The new mum — who welcomed daughter Stormi in February — has shared heaps of snaps from the lavish party, including an adorable photo of her with boyfriend Travis Scott.

On Saturday she then enjoyed dinner with her closest pals, where she rocked a stunning glittery dress.
